    Can someone walk me through the best way to organize my contacts. The dude at t-mobile imported all my contacts from my old sim card, but now when I search I come up with tons of duplicates, some "t-mobile" and some "phone".

    I'm reading that people are recommending doing it through gmail, but I can't figure out how to get all my contacts from my phone to sync to my gmail account. I'll give it a go tomorrow and see if I can figure it out, just figured someone on here may be able to quickly help me out... instead of me walking around in the dark till I find it.

    Cheers

  3. First of all as your using Android TMobile will store contact under your account so you can import contacts from SIM card to Phone and then disable SIM contact so you won't get duplicates. Now far as GMail contact goes you have to cross link it with that though sync. Gmail is little bit more annoying with name email.

    Thanks. Yeah, I've got them into my phone, an disabled the viewing of the sim contacts, but when I actually SEARCH for a contact, they all show up again, including the duplicates on my sim. I may have to just manually do it all...

    After you save contacts out of your sim, you can pretty much remove them from your sim card. It was the time using dumb phones storing contacts in Sim. Now with smart phones, you don't need to do that.

    I use Gmail Contact to store all my contacts. I can access them online through gmail, and import and export from there. They are in the cloud and you can access them anywhere. Also switching phones or carriers, your contact will still be there.

    Is this doable with stock ROM on the MyTouch 4G?
